to of franklin d. roosevelt, acting secretary-general of united nations' founding conference in san francisco and recently named president of the carnegie endowment for national peace. he emphatically denied chambers's allegation. a great deal more than the reputations of these two men was at stake. if this was innocent, anti communism, and those closely associated with the like richard nixon. it was dealt a devastating blow. if alger hiss was guilty, anti communism would occupy a prominent part of the political landscape, and his spokesman would become national leaders. furthermore, chambers and alger hiss each represented one side in the epic struggle of the cold war. one man symbolized the philosophy of freedom and western civilization. the other the ideology of totalitarianism and marxism and leninism. both left and right understood that america and the world was at a critical point in history. considered a major political events had transpired between august of 1948 when chambers confronted alger hiss at a congressional hearing. in may of 1952 when chambers published his managerial and m

of franklin d. roosevelt, most likely out of sheer desperation unleashed a productive power of free market capitalism to bury the acid towers in a tsunami of tanks, planes, and ships. anyone who's read my my books knows the statistics of pink slime just not far from where i teach, a tank was built from scratch in four and a half hours. henry kaiser's shipyard churned out a liberty ship in a record four and a half days. that's faster than most of my students can write one of their semester papers. this undergirded american military strategy of using weapons and technology to thoroughly pummeled the enemy before a single american soldier was sent into battle. the war also exposed the fact that japan, which adopted some of the capitalistic production methods in america, lacked the essential powers of exceptionalism to employ them fully in wartime. without free speech, free markets, constitutional protection that about great inventors and businessmen to try new ideas and fail without punishment, japan fell behind the u.s. almost instantly. in four years of war, the u.s. produced 17 fleet carri

institution. presidents appoint justices to reflect their political ideaol, whether it's franklin d. roosevelt trying to get the new deal -- a constitutional stamp of approval, or lyndon johnson trying to get desegregation through judicial review. and as for the most conservative reactionary of all time, i have criticisms with the roberts court but this is the court that brought us dred scott. these are really horrible decisions, and far worse than anything that this supreme court could come up with. so i don't think this is a more political or more right wing court than it's ever been. i do think it's political, and i do think it's considerable. >> i think at the same time it is the most activist court in hoyt, and my colleague at syracuse university has a book on this, what he has shown is that the modern court is the most activist in terms of striking down popularly enacted laws than the warren court or any court before. so in that sense the court is getting involved in issues that the american people have spoken on, issues they want, and the court has said, no, and both at the state level

nd president franklin d. roosevelt. >> but manufacturers began too realize if they can agree on how to separate clothing and toys by gender they could sell more to everyone. pink and blue could have gone the other way. there was a good bit of pink on men in the 1980s and today even things as mundane as school supplies. >> does anybody have a pen. they are color coded for boys and girls. >> pinks. she says this might make marketers and parents' lives easier but it doesn't do much for kids. it's part of a larger picture of pushing kids to grow up faster and do things earlier, i think. >> in the end, does this baby even care what color she's wearing? or he. and always very curious. one day george got an important letter. he's built a rocket ship to travel into space." google, how far is earth to the moon? the moon is 238,900 miles...

rid of -- before d-day? franklin roosevelt was having affairs. franklin roosevelt had two very long-term affairs. one with missy lehand ,-com,-com ma his personal aide and secretary and cook and dresser-rand undress her apparently too. what if we found out about fdr's misbehavior and what if we threw fdr out of office as the economy was recovering? all the way back to the french and indian war, very young george washington was writing romantic letters to a woman who was not mrs. washington. her name was sally terry fairfax, very attractive, older, sophisticated woman. what if washington letters have become public during the french and indian war or the revolutionary war? but just petraeus' e-mails became public and what if we got rid of george washington? bill clinton is not the first and not the worst in petraeus is not the first for the worse. in there ,-com,-com ma done that and there's a long history in infected pains me to say that even abraham lincoln visited a prostitute. i know, say it isn't so, right? but it happened. the details are sketchy and there's not a lot of letter

front. franklin roosevelt is telling marshall we have to fight somewhere, it is an election year. and churchill pushed back in 1942 and 1943 and finally the norm normandy invasion came and he took a lot of heat from roosevelt, stalin, so i would like sir winston to have the opportunity to tell me in his own words the story behind the story. in his memoirs he avoids the squabbles, doesn't even mention it. but the alliance was perched on the cliff several times. host: what would he have been like to be around? guest: if you worked for him you would get a mercurial, sometimes generous, sometimes overbearing, sometimes almost cruel boss who, he didn't know how to apologize, which men of his age and class, they are not going to apologize to a young private secretary or typist. and he had a way of sort of turning the tables and his version of a apology would be to say i'm a very kind man and you are doing a very good job today but the issue was never settled. he always had to get the last word in. one night going through white hall a german bomb fell. he should not have been out at all

the franklin roosevelt administration, and the whole purpose of that was to try to bring electricity to rural areas that didn't have it and in those days, there were many rural areas in america that didn't have electricity. and while electricity did come then to the duncan valley and to verden and to lordsburg, it did not come out to the ranches. and my father made some arrangement with the local rea that he would build the line, put the poles in--in to their specifications and string the wire to their specs, if he could get hooked up. and when i was away at stanford, i think, we finally got hooked up with the rea. and that was very helpful because, at that point, it was possible then to eventually put an electric pump down in the wells and get our water pumped out with that electric energy. and my mother could have a refrigerator in the kitchen and run a--a--a vacuum cleaner and a washing machine and all those things that hadn't been easy to do before. c-span: how much education did your father have? >> guest: he never went to college. he went to high school in pasadena. his father had found
